Hi there! How are you all doing? Hope you are enjoying this season of outdoor fun and living. There is so much going on right in your neighborhood— and it’s free! I checked out a few things for you and I discovered no matter what part of the city or county you live in there are free festivals, carnivals, flea markets, concerts and farmer’s markets, and shows with live bands, DJ’s, vendors of arts & crafts, food, jewelry, clothes, fruit, vegetables, flowers and plants, and just about anything you could possibly want or need.
